The food was just ok, nothing else. Food seemed to me regular, only with Greek names. I was just expecting more, maybe we just didnt try enough variety. Service just regular

We were so surprised when the waitresses lined up for their Zorba dance and even more so when the napkins started flying and dishes broke. Food was excellent as well. Friendly crew, would go again.

I live in the Tampa Bay area and have been to this restaurant many times. I am a local. I have tried many places and this is most definitely one of the better Mediterranean restaurants in town. Great variety of delicious foods! Best salads and the hummus is oh so yummy! Are you a vegan/vegetarian? They have great options! It's... More

I have had dinner and lunch and the food quality is GREAT - the amount is overwhelming so take this into consideration. watch for all the napkins on the floor. If there is a birthday or party they wait-staff will come to sing and there are napkins everywhere! It is fun, but the food makes it a must visit when... More

Acropolis in Ybor City Tampa is always a must stop for us whenever in the area. The staff is full of personality especially when the traditional music kicks in and they do their dance. The food is awesome and sure to satisfy all tastes buds. "OPA!"

First impression was good beside the paper napkins on the floor, but I guess it's their style. The special appetizer ( spread salmon) was light and delicious. Eos salad and shish kebab were on top. Then we got a dessert. Baklava cheesecake was to die for. And on top of everything our server Phillip did a great job. Thank you

So I came here at the recommendation of my best friend. Upon entering I noticed that there was napkins EVERYWHERE; I wasn't familiar with Greek tradition. Apparently every hour the waiters/waitresses dance and throw napkins; there's also plate breaking and screams of OPA! Very awesome if you get a chance to check it out. The food = AMAZING. I only...
